Would it be alright doing weighted bench dips and dumbell raises on the same day, as in will i still get good median shoulder results even though doing bench dips stretch the delts.

There's nothing wrong with training chest with delts.

so i'll still get a great median shoulder workout even though bench dips might strength them.

Are you doing front arm raises or dumbbell laterals?

For shoulders I combine front and side DB raises into one movement. It goes like this:

Start with dumbells hanging to your side
Raise them straight out to your sides, parallel to the floor
Move them out in front of you
Let them fall to your front (your now in starting position for front raises)
Bring them up in front of you
Move them back out to the side
Return to starting position

that's one rep. works both the anterior and lateral delts. If you feel pressure in your rotator cuff, check to ensure your posture is correct (should be full attention posture). Feet slightly more than shoulder width apart, chest out, shoulders back, slight arch to your back. Nothing makes my shoulder burn more than this exercise. If the shoulder discomfort continues, then this isn't your exercise...

If by median you mean lateral delts then this exercise will make you wimper (if it doesn't then increase the weight).

$.02

edit: I"ve starting focusing on engaging my core more lately so I don't do this exercie right now, I do side and front raises but as seperate movements and only do 1 arm at a time, put your hand on your opposite oblique/ab and you'll understand.

I just realized I said "chest with delts" ..... I meant to say delts with triceps. Generally, if your training delts and triceps together you'll be better off training delts first, then triceps. That way, your triceps are less likely to be a limitting factor in overhead presses.
